Full Manuscript Requested

An agent requested the full manuscript for the first book. I have the manuscript in hand, but I really, really, really want to retune the whole thing. Some of the later chapters are completely unpolished; others still have plenty of loose ends. One chapter probably needs to be cut (and honestly really belongs with a subplot in the sequel). I don't think I have time for a complete second draft, but I'll have to give some thought to what is the most valuable cleanup and what's needless fussing.

How soon do agents expect to see requested material? A few days, weeks? A month or two? Any advice (especially from editors and agents) would be appreciated.
